History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Robert Gutman was born on Aug. 3, 1926, in New York City and studied sociology at Columbia University, earning his B.A. in 1946 and Ph.D. in 1955. From 1948 to 1957 he taught sociology at Dartmouth, and from 1957 to 1996 he taught at Rutgers University. With support from a grant, in 1965 he began further study into the relationship of sociology and architecture, enrolling at the Bartlett School of Architecture of University College London and at Princeton University. His relationship with Princeton evolved into a visiting professorship at the School of Architecture in 1969, a position he held until he retired from Rutgers and became a full-time lecturer at Princeton. Long interested in the complex relationships between architectural practice, design, and society, Gutman was the author, co-author, or editor of many significant publications, including "Neighborhood, city, and metropolis" (1970)"People and buildings" (1970)"Design of American housing : a reappraisal of the architect's role" (1985), and "Architectural practice : a critical view" (1988). His articles were also widely published in scholarly and professional journals. Gutman died in Princeton, New Jersey, in 2007.
